Google Chrome: Disable Google Update

After installing Google Chrome you may have noticed that Google Update is running in your task manager.

My quick and easy method for getting rid of it is to run the little utility called "Autoruns", find
"Google Update" in the list, and uncheck the box.
Also look for a listing called GoogleUpdate... in the "Task Scheduler" shown farther down in autouns
and uncheck any "Google..." listings.
Reboot your PC and Google Update won't run anymore.

"Autoruns" is available here
and is a handy utility to have.
